The critics are united in their praise. Jancis Robinson MW was an early admirer of the wines, saying of the 2019 Schlossberg Riesling “This is Alsace Riesling at its very best. Such depth and reverberation already. This is the sort of wine I could drink all night.” Now Stuart Pigott has released his scores on jamessuckling.com and they are emphatic.

The mineral tones of Riesling Schlossberg, from the highest section of the slope garner an impressive 97/100 as do the exotically spiced Gewurztraminers Furstentum (Grand Cru) and Altenbourg.
